AI have just set-up my Canon MG5320 and have read mixed reviews online on whether to leave it running all of the time or turn it off. Apparently if it's left on it will decrease the possibility of printhead clogs.

Does anyone have any advice please?

Many thanks!

I havethe iP3600 so it may be different but I leave mine off when not in use.  I will turn it on once a day (if I'm in the room) and once it is powered up I turn it back off.  When you turn it on the heads run across and I think this helps to keep it unclogged.  Maybe others will have different advise.

AI turn mine off. If I don't have any EIs for a week I always do a test on a regular paper to keep it in good shape!

We do not have a position either way.  I think the advice given above makes sense.
